Never seems to be busy but the food is very good. Service is friendly, efficient and pretty quick. Seafood entrée was fresh and didn't have the usual "frozen food" taste that pubs seem to like. Chicken Parma hit the mark but the "red snapper" special...More

It's so hard to find somewhere to relax for a drink with friends without going to a Pub. This place has it all, we actually stayed all afternoon but only called in for a coffee. The Coffee was the best I've had whilst on holidays,...More
